Here We Go: Red Sox v. Yankees

The first sign of Spring in America 

New York Yankee’s Co-Owner Hank Steinbrenner: “Red Sox Nation? What a bunch of (expletive) that is….  Go anywhere in America and you won’t see Red Sox hats and jackets, you’ll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We’re going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order.”

Associated Press Sports Writer Ian O’Connor: “The Red Sox have become the Yankees, and the Yankees have become the Red Sox, and Hank and [Joe] Girardi [the Yankee's new manager] will have a hell of a time reversing the damage…. George Steinbrenner always thought a transition period was the time spent between the last out of October and the ceremony at city hall, and [Joe] Torre readily accepted that term of engagement.   Now Hank and his manager confront a bigger obstacle on their way back to a ticker-tape rain. These days, the only team worthy of being called an evil empire is based 200 miles north of the Bronx.”

So it begins, 2008-style.

So two titles means the Red Sox have become a team with 26 World Championships and the Yankees have become a team that hasn’t won in 86 years?

Well… If you look at the results from this millennium, the Sox have won 28.5% of the World Series titles while the Yankees have 0%. :-)
